A pleasing owl portrait which would benefit from some detail in the eyes.

A very beautifully composed Owl Portrait Fred, one which is crammed packed with fine detail, and wonderful natural colours in abundance.

Hi Fred nice capture mate, we did have a problem with this one, he would not keep his eyes open, my shots are the same no eye detail, but the feather detail is excellent.

Regards

Trev.

Good treatment to a good pose. It's a pity he didn't see eye to eye with you.

OK, so he wouldn't look up, but it's a lovely detailed image of the tawny with warm tones throughout and also an attractive "perch".

The detail and colours in the feathers are superb Fred, it's a pity he was so un-cooperative. As they say "never work with children and animals", I guess it must apply to birds as well!Wink

A lovely image of this attractive Owl. I had one sitting in my lounge this week, believe it or not! It had come down the chimney which thankfully was pretty clean. A charming if unexpected little visitor who allowed us to get very close and eventually permitted my husband to put a towel around it and take it outside when it flew off towards the steading. Never expected to get so close to a wild Owl.
